This family-owned and operated one of a kind breakfast and brunch cafe is Located in the heart of one of Chicago’s prominent communities, Lincoln Park. Lizzy J is known for its loving atmosphere, delicious eats, and its homemade teas!

For more than 25 years, I worked as an event planner and tasted the finest of every cuisine. My travels have taken me to complete classes with Food Network star, Tyler Florence and cooking with executive chefs in the industry. I have been trained at the hip of my grandmother and godmother.

My love of food and creating special moments is my motivation for launching Lizzy J. Named after five generations of first born woman with the middle name of Elizabeth, I am the fourth generation Elizabeth.

Lizzy J is a full service catering company. We specialize in everyday food with an extraordinary twist. We still incorporate the family staple of love into each dish. We believe every guest should have a memorable experience that exceeds her expectations. We aim to ‘wow’ you. Our philosophy is that excellence is in the details, and we don’t settle for anything less.
